(see Zakishi-Warashi#Etymology)

Tengu'ou Kurama translates to "Tengu King Kurama".


Tengu'ou Kurama appears to be based on Sōjōbō, the king of tengu who lives on Mount Kurama. He is sometimes simply referred to as Kurama Tengu (Japanese: 鞍馬天狗).


  • Ironically, he was the only Yo-kai who failed to impress Tae.
